I’m going to be completely honest and admit that I’m a total control freak. Perhaps that is why I love making these pops. Unlike most recipes, you are in total control.
Now this recipe is crazy simple and totally delish. The fun part (aka controlling) is that you have tons of room to add your own creative twist. Mix and match your favorite yogurt flavors and toppings for endless possibilities. Do you like chocolate covered bananas? Start with banana yogurt and add mini chocolate chips and banana slices to your yogurt! What about peanut butter and jelly? Mix in strawberries and drop a spoonful of peanut butter into the center for a yummy surprise. Do you scarf down Mounds when no one’s looking? Add mini chocolate chips to coconut yogurt along with a sprinkling of toasted coconut and your obsession could actually be healthy. (I’m looking at you, Momma.)
It’s all up to you! You’re in control.
